Jonesboro, Ga. (May 30, 2017) – The Heritage Community Foundation presented a $2,500 grant to Marla Brown, CEO of Pregnancy Aid Clinic in Forest Park, Georgia to fund a program focused on providing prevention education and decreasing sexually transmitted infections among 18 to 25 year olds.
“We have seen reports noting the increase in sexually transmitted infections among young adults in Clayton County,” said Mark Dose, Executive Director of the Heritage Community Foundation. “We believe this program will have a positive effect on the health of the community at large and encourage young adults in this area make healthy choices regarding sexual behavior”.
The Pregnancy Aid Clinic works to empower individuals and families through medical and educational resources focused on promoting the sanctity of human life. The clinic is nonprofit and provides pregnancy testing and a range of parenting and educational support.
